Malaysian Tour Champion In Malacca
Dutch star Milou van der Heijden justified her top-billing in
the Women's Malaysian Squash Tour Leg 2 when she beat local
hope Vanessa Raj in today's final of the WSA Challenger 5
event at Stadium Skuasy Hang Jebat Melaka in Paya Rumput
in the Malaysian state of Malacca.
The Dutch champion from Eindhoven reached the 10th WSA World Tour
final of her career after defeating fourth-seeded Malaysian
Rachel Arnold in the semi-finals.
Raj, the No.3 seed, also overcame a local player in the last four
round, despatching sixth seed Teh Min Jie 11-2, 11-4, 11-5 in
just 29 minutes.
Van der Heijden, the 24-year-old World No.41, had to pull out all
the stops to keep 19-year-old Raj at bay. At 2/1 up, the Dutch
favourite ultimately prevailed in a lengthy fourth game to win
12-10, 11-5, 6-11, 14-12 after 50 minutes and secure the third WSA
Tour title of her career.
"I'm happy to win my third WSA title here in Malacca and played well
to beat Vanessa in the final," said the jubilant champion. "I hope
to win more WSA titles in the future!"
